Alice laughed. "There's no use trying," she said: " one can't believe impossible things."
"I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." Alice In Wonderland, Lewis Carroll
When you wake up, what are the first things you think? Is it a to do list of your day, a recap of yesterday, a commentary on why and how you are going to handle today's events? Or, do you imagine all the amazing things that could happen today, tomorrow or next year? Do you wake up believing the impossible could happen today?
I will bet most of us don't do that last sentence much. But why? Are we so focused on achievement and accomplishment and survival that we never imagine impossible things?
"Don't you dream impossible things?" Unknown
I LOVE the idea of practicing imagining 6 impossible things before breakfast. What a great way to start the day! Some of the best moments and most fulfilling parts of our lives come from impossibility turned into possibility. If we never dare to dream, dare to imagine, dare to be bold - we won't know now will we. Yes, there's the potential for tons of pitfalls here and definitely the potential for disappointment but what if - what if it all could come true? What if your dream, no matter how impossible it seems in this moment, were to come true?
"Things are only impossible until they are not." Jean Luc Picard, Patrick Stewart
This month we are focusing on self love and I think a very big part of self love is dreaming BIG, allowing ourselves time to imagine the impossible, to write it down, to ask the universe for it, to believe that just maybe it can happen. So how about you join me for a little challenge - practice imagining just ONE impossible thing every day this month. Believe that ONE impossible thing can happen. See what happens when you start to practice believing the impossible? It just takes practice.
Now, give yourself a big hug and repeat after me...I believe in the impossible!
See you on the mat!
I have been "playing" and experimenting with yoga, aromatherapy and healthy living since my late teens - researching, testing, reading, investigating, and learning anything that would make my life - and the lives around me - better naturally.
